Happy New Year! Each year I pick a word. The design is to help me focus my prayers, goals, growth, medication and stress. In years past I chose words like subtle, demure, present- and with great success (self reported), generally I nail it.
This year is serenity. 2020- they year I turn 50 will be release. This comes in a progression of the past years as I have used my running mantra as my guide- Patience, Priority, Purpose, Integrity, Serenity, Release. I’m off for a quick New Year’s Eve run- and ready for a quiet evening home with the man of my dreams.
2018 was a challenge. I’ll save the summary for another day- what I realize, however, is that the great challenges I have faces only make me stronger, bold and ready for whatever 2019 brings. I embrace serenity.
Here is a reflection from 1996 -and from there you can find reflections from years past. http://randymarcotte.com/Holiday96.html I offer this and some pictures from the past years, a reflection of lessons learned and blessings earned.
